A follow up to "Put Your Worries Here" — the first journal in The Instant Help Guided Journals for Teens series — "Put Your Feelings Here" focuses on reducing and managing debilitating emotions such as fear, frustration, stress, and sadness.
Unlike most journals designed for teens, Lisa M. Schab, LCSW, uses dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), an offshoot of cognitive-behavioral therapy that targets emotional regulation and distress tolerance.
With prompts that guide teens to finding fragrances they love, planning the ultimate party, and giving loved one's advice, teens will learn to stay calm, reduce intense emotions, and enter a state of mindfulness that they can use well beyond their teen years.
Listen as Schab joins host Lisa Davis to share more about DBT and how people of any age can use the technique to manage their feelings.
